The theory basically goes that any civilisation which could evolve to a ‘post-human’ stage would almost certainly learn to run simulations on the scale of a universe. And that given the size of reality – billions of worlds, around billions of suns – it is fairly likely that if this is possible, it has already happened.

The research could lead to computers and robots that think like people – and unlock the secrets of depression and Alzheimer’s.
Billion Euro supercomputer to ‘simulate entire human brain’
The research could lead to computers and robots that think like people – and unlock the secrets of depression and Alzheimer’s.A ten-year project in Europe will use supercomputers to simulate the workings of an entire human brain for the first time.
The research could lead to computers and robots that think like people.
Scientists also claim that the research could unlock the secrets of memory, depression and Alzheimer’s.
“The HBP will build new platforms for “neuromorphic computing” and “neurorobotics”, allowing researchers to develop new computing systems and robots based on the architecture and circuitry of the brain,” EFPL scientists said in a statement this week.
